    From the problem description, I understand that you are having trouble installing Windows 8. I want to ask you few questions in order to understand the issue better.

    1) What is the make and model of the computer?
    2) Have you made any changes prior to the issue?

    This issue may also be caused by external devices or hardware that is connected to your system. Remove all external devices, such as printers, external hard drives, USB devices that are not necessary for installing Windows. Now, update your display driver to the latest version display driver.

    After this is completed we will restart the computer in the Clean Boot Mode:
    Method 1: Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.
    Clean boot:

    Note: After clean boot troubleshooting step, follow the “Steps to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state” in the provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.

    Method 2: Perform System Update Readiness Tool.

    Method 3: System File Checker Tool
    System File Checker Tool will try to help you in fixing all the corrupted files and folders in the computer.
